This one has cheese in them and it is very healthy because it is baked. If you dont have oven, you can pan fry it in little oil on both sides till golden. Hope you will try this out and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Baking Time : 25 mins
Makes: 20 to 25 patties


Broccoli - 3 cups finely chopped
Cheese - 1 cup grated ( i used mozzarella, cheddar works too)
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Egg - 2
Breadcrumbs - 1 cup 
Oil - 1 tsp

(If you dont want to add egg, skip it and add more breadcrumbs)


Preheat oven to 200 degree C.

Boil 1 cup of water, add in broccoli in and cook them for 3 mins. Drain them and set aside.

Take it in a bowl, add in egg, salt, cheese, breadcrumbs and mix well.

Now take small portion from this and arrange it in a lightly oiled baking pan. 

Pop it in oven and bake for 15 to 18 mins till it is cooked, now i set the oven to grill mode and grilled it for 3 to 4 mins till it is golden.

Remove it and let it cool a bit and serve.

If you dont have oven, you can pan fry them in oil.

You can arrange the shaped ones in a plastic wrap lined plate and freeze till frozen., then collect it in a air tight container and freeze for later use. You can fry them in a pan with little oil straight from their frozen stage. They can be stored in freezer for a week.

You can freeze these for layer use as well..In that case,
